There was a lot a talk about Angela’s hair when she tweeted a pic of it with the weave out. I always felt like it was redundant to get a relaxer and then put a weave on your hair so I’m happy to hear (and see) that she is taking care of her hair and keeping it natural under all the weave changes. What disappointed me in the below article is the fact that 1) she has such a gorgeous head of natural hair and keeps it covered with weaves 2) that she considers her natural hair “ugly” after she works out & 3) that she’s making excuses for wearing the weaves over wearing her own natural hair out and owning it. Over all it’s a good interview though. Leave a comment and let me know what you think 🙂

Angela Simmons Talks Natural Hair !
On her hair and the twitter pic…
I’ve been natural for 3 years. I was wearing weaves and keeping my hair braided underneath and I was like, why am I still relaxing if I’m keeping it braided anyway?! I figured I didn’t need the chemicals and plus it burned. So I guess you can say I transitioned. I never cut it, or got a major cut. I just stopped getting perms. I was experiencing major breakage from the perm and old color so I grew out the damage with the help of my stylist. My hair grows super fast underneath the weaves.
On her hair texture…
It’s soft and big and thick. And when I wash it, it curls up. I love it!
On her favorite products…
I don’t really do my own hair, but for upkeep, I’ll use Moroccan Oil. Other than that, I stay in the hair salon. I’m there like 2-3 times a week.
